We continue to run our online services on Sunday mornings, have an Alpha Online and our pastoral support team are in contact with all partners. We have taken our first steps to having people in the building by opening two small Connect groups on a Wednesday evening and Thursday morning (no more than 15 people in each group). Read more about the Gatehouse’s latest COVID update.
The Gatehouse will be not be hosting Alpha Courses in the church hall until further notice. We are running Online Alpha courses in place of these.
The course normally consists of 11 sessions, each session includes lunch, a short talk and discussion where you can share your thoughts.
The talks are designed to engage guests and inspire conversation. A place where people can ask questions, talk through issues, share honest opinions and make new friends. Usually around thirty minutes long, the sessions are given as a live talk or played as a video, all for free. Food and drinks are available before each session. The sessions explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can I have faith?
There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
If you’re interested to register for a course please sign up at the table at the back of the church. If you just want further information, please contact us on 01253 347521 or email or click on the Send us a message button on our Facebook page.
